DNBOF - Weather presets pack

Six weather presets that include: Fog, Shallow Mist, Lying Snow, Snow Showwrs, Thunderstorms and Windy

Fog - Affects slant/horizontal visibility in the short to mid range
Shallow Mist - Affects slant/horizontal visibility in the mid to long range
Lying Snow - Snow on the ground, no wind and some high altitude cloud
Snow Showers - Large but scattered high precipitation snow showers with light winds
Thunderstorms - Large but scattered high precipitation thunderstorms with gusty winds
Windy - Test for GA especially, Surface = 225/25 knots, gusting 40 knots, 10,000 feet = 270/60 knots, no gusts, 30,000 feet = 270/80 knots, no gusts
De-icing - Utility preset for those times when you cannot avoid freezing conditions, you don't have windscreen/airframe de-icing and just need a bit of heat to help you out with minimal loss of immersion.

Instructions

Simply unzip the downloaded file and place the folder dnbof-weather-presets-pack into your Community folder and start-up MSFS2020. Presets will then be available in the weather preset drop-down list. Have fun!

    Edpatino does have the correct path for STEAM installations. Just copy the individual WPR files into that directory and they show up fine. Thanks for the presets!

    In a future update, could it be possible to have the Windy preset modified a bit to reduce the intensity of the winds?. MSFS effects are too sensitive to high winds and the effects are too exaggerated. Maybe looking for something like "Moderate Winds"?.

    On a Steam installation, the presets cannot go into the Community folder, but here instead (custom install on Steam):
    C:\Users\<Your_Name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Weather\Presets
    Thanks for this nice work!

    If you just take the preset files out of this, then it´s as you mentioned, but this here is a complete addon, which can be placed into the community folder or managed by an addon-manager, to be de/activated an demand.

    There is anonther download on another site from sept. 2020, just offering preset files, which only work when droped into the folder you mentioned. But THIS HERE is just as comfortable as any other addon.

    I'm taking the folder as downloaded, not as single files, and it does not work when I place it in the Community folder.

    Hmmm... strange... do you have any other mods installed? Maybe it´s just a conflict between some of them.

    Maybe try to geactivate all others and just habe THIS one in the community folder. Would be interesting if it´s working then.

    I have literally thousands mods installed. No problem, the presets are individually placed in the corresponding Weather folder together with the SoFly presets installed by ORBX Central and many others taken from different sites. I'm on Steam, not in the MS Store

    All fine!

    You mentioned weather presets from other sites, i know the ones from sofly and the "More Interesting Weather Presets" so far, if you know about any more, any hint would be very welcome!

    These are the ones, taken from Nexusmods.com. There are three other presets I took from Avsim, but I couldn't find the link, it was back in September

    Will this interfere pre-set weather programs like sofly?

    Works alongside SoFly's excellent package without issue. I use them myself and they have another 10 presets coming next week to coincide with the UK World Update #3

    Typically I have to put weather presets here (MS Store version):

    C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Weather\Presets

    Just the WPR files though

    Yes, I'm certain. If you put the folder "dnbof-weather-presets-pack" unzipped from the download into the "Community" folder, then start MSFS2020, they should be there on the preset list before you fly, or on the drop-down preset list once in flight. These instructions are for MS Store version.

    (I'm afraid I cannot help with other versions as I don't have them to try it out on)
